This Halloween, we are treating you to more fascinating talks from the MedTech track of Second Collisions. Our three speakers will certainly spark your interest in areas covering vaccine delivery technology, cancer treatment therapy and research on Parkinson's disease, each of them demonstrating the impact of CERN alumni across the globe.

Do you work or have an interest in the MedTech sector? Would you like to share ideas and your experience with others? Would you be interested in co-managing a CERN Alumni MedTech interest group? If so, please contact us for more information.

This week, more than 200 participants gathered online at the 11th annual HL-LHC collaboration meeting to take stock of CERN’s flagship project as it starts taking shape on an industrial scale:

The ATLAS collaboration is breathing new life into its LHC Run 2 dataset. Physicists will be reprocessing the entire dataset. Not only will this improve ATLAS physics measurements and searches, it will also position the collaboration well for the upcoming challenges of Run 3 and beyond:

Did you know that our ATLAS colleagues organise regular, virtual ATLAS visits and you are welcome to take part? The next scheduled
visit is taking place on Friday 5th Nov from 15.00 - 16.00 CET. More information and register here:
